Our Plan for Reopening
We’re moving inside!
Starting Sunday, Nov. 8, our in-person 9 am service will be in the Pavilion. We’ll also be live online at 9 am, and we’ll replay that service online at 10:45.
You’ll need to reserve your space for the service here.
We want to make sure everyone has accurate information about current operations, so please help us by pointing people toward this page if they have questions.
Frequently Asked Questions
CrossPoint Kids meet in-person on campus at 9 am. Please RSVP here.
CrossPoint Students meet in-person on campus on Wednesday nights. More info here.
In consideration of others, we strongly recommend wearing a mask when physical distancing isn’t possible, especially indoors. Children meeting in their classrooms will need to wear a mask, because of the closer proximity and smaller spaces.
If you are medically unable to wear a tight-fitting mask, please consider an alternative, looser-fitting face covering.
If you visit the office during the week for an appointment, you’ll need to wear a face covering in the offices and hallways.
We’ll set up clusters of chairs in the Pavilion, appropriately distanced for each group or individual. Hosts can help you find a great spot to sit.
When we’re back in the Worship Center, we’ll have designated seating areas, with hosts to seat each group or individual at appropriate distances.
The services are touchless, so we won’t be handing out programs, or handshakes, or offering plates. On Sundays when we take communion, we’ll provide the elements ahead of time in self-contained packages.
We have increased our already thorough cleaning schedule, and a team will sanitize rooms before each service.
Everyone will be directed on how to self-check for symptoms before coming to church, and when you check in, we’ll make sure everyone has done so. If you’re sick, please stay home.
Officials have identified these higher risk categories:
- Older adults (65+)
- Individuals with compromised immune systems
- Individuals who have serious chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, and lung disease
- A care-taker of or has a high-risk category person living with them
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, please worship from home until you are symptom-free. If you are scheduled to volunteer, please let your team leader know.
Recent loss of taste or smell
Or if someone you live with has been diagnosed with COVID-19
At this time no other groups will be meeting on campus either on Sundays or during the week.
When we’re able, we’ll begin opening some of those groups in phases. Your group leaders will be communicating directly with you when the time comes. You can continue to watch this space for updates as well.
Here at CrossPoint, we’ve talked a lot about concern vs conviction. This season has been fertile ground for reacting out of concern over things that aren’t actually happening but could happen. From bias, people then make absolute statements about situations and people that aren’t legitimate. We believe that we have not been, nor do we plan to begin, making decisions from concern. Here are the foundational convictions that we are standing on as we move forward.
Convictions we are making decisions by:
- 1. God loves His Church and His will is for her to be His influence in this world.
- 2. God knows the outcomes of every action and will lead His church down the path that will most glorify Him, through people who fear Him and those who do not.
- 3. God’s people are called consistently to submit to the governing authorities over them with very specific imperatives toward civil disobedience only when the authority demands disobedience toward God.
- 4. God defines the Church as a body not an individual; therefore, the Church is called to find ways to experience true Gospel community regardless of the circumstances.
- 5. God calls the Church to love people, and the love Jesus demonstrates is a self-giving and self-sacrificial love. Love risks itself, not others.
Each of these come from the testimony of Scripture and are not born of our bias, agenda, or preferences. This is the grid of how we have been and will continue to make decisions.
